Ingredion will share their latest snacking innovations at the upcoming IBA trade fair in Munich, emphasising that healthy snacks can deliver on taste and texture
When snacks provide a satisfying indulgent pleasure in between meals, every bite counts. Consumers who fuel their day with smaller, more frequent eating occasions seek satisfaction, not “junk food”.
Consumers are increasingly demanding and exploring snacks – more specifically, healthy snacks. To keep up with this growing trend towards health and wellbeing in the snacks consumers enjoy, formulators must discover the just-right combination of ingredient solutions all the while delivering on taste, texture, nutrition and label appeal.
Ingredion’s expansive portfolio of in-demand snack texturizers, plant proteins, fibres and more can help you translate consumer desires into delectable creations and deliver the crunchy, crispy, chewy snacking experiences consumers crave. Sustainably sourced from on-trend plants such as peas, lentils, chickpeas, and faba beans, these plant proteins enable you to deliver unique flavours, clean labels and winning nutritional benefits, while enjoying functional benefits in formulation.
In addition, our formulation experts provide support to stay ahead of trends with healthier products an clean and simple labels in a number of ways:
- Achieve just-right texture that makes all the difference
- Create products that are non-GMO and free from gluten or allergens
- Reduce or replace costly ingredients while retaining taste and texture
- Discover new ways to maximise your margins
- Deliver authentic flavour and colour
Find revolutionary ways to accelerate your growth in:
- Chips, crisps and crackers
- Extruded snacks and pellets
- Baked snacks
- Cereals, cereal bars & nutrition bars
Demands for nutrition, clean label, sustainability and convenience are ever-present, but in a competitive market filled with new product innovation, formulators can’t afford to develop products that meet these needs at the expense of taste and cost.
If you’re looking to fast track innovation and tap into the long-term trends of convenience, clean label and health and wellness, we are the perfect partner.
At Ingredion, we produce a range of speciality starch and flour-based ingredients for savoury snacks, such as potato snacks, vegetable snacks, nuts and snack mixes. We can help you from concept to ingredient selection and from scale-up to consumer validation. Our chefs and technical experts work hand- in- glove with you, to help you win your market.
At this year’s IBA event in Munich (running October 22 – 26 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre) we will be showcasing a range of healthy snacks and baked goods which deliver on taste, texture and overall satisfaction.
